Low Maintenance Vinyl Window Sills Available

ONTARIO, CALIF. – Sill‑Rite™ solid vinyl window sills help protect the window sill area from damage caused by moisture, condensation and leaks. Available to builders and remodelers through their favorite building products dealer or supplier, Sill‑Rite sills are completely prefabricated and finished, allowing building industry professionals to save time and labor on the job site.

The low-maintenance Sill‑Rite PVC sill resists water, mold, stains and warping. Each sill is pre-finished on all exposed edges and requires no priming or painting. The white sills (which attractively wrap around the sides of the window instead of being butt cut) can be painted and are available in two profiles: classic, for an elegant traditional style, and streamline, for a contemporary style.

"Both drywall and MDF can be easily damaged by moisture when used as window sill material," says Karl Hatrak, president of Sill‑Rite. "Worse than that, these materials can breed mold. They’re simply not the best choice for a window sill material. Other choices, such as marble or solid surface sills, are extremely costly in terms of materials and labor.

"Sill‑Rite window sills are pre-finished and sized for standard window openings. The solid cellular PVC sills are cost-effective, install quickly and resist everything from insects to rot to water. Even better, the Sill-Rite surfaces are attractive, easy to clean and require very little maintenance."

Backed by a 25-year limited warranty, Sill‑Rite window sills are individually prefabricated to fit typical window openings. Sills are available in two depths (five and seven inches) to fit 2x4 and 2x6 constructed walls. The low maintenance window sills can be installed during or after drywall installation.

"Typically, the window area receives heavy wear and tear during the course of construction," says Hatrak. "The sill area generally needs extensive repair at the end of a project. With the Sill-Rite sills builders and remodelers save time and worry. There’s no need to repair a damaged sill, just install a new Sill‑Rite sill at the final stage of construction and you’re set.

"Callbacks are virtually non-existent with this product versus drywall, MDF or wood sills. Between the overall attractiveness of the sills, the installation time saved and the durability of the product, builders and remodelers will discover that Sill‑Rite sills are an investment in their homes."

Completely waterproof and made of non-organic materials, Sill‑Rite window sills are available nationwide through dealers and suppliers.
